About UCLA School of Law's Intellectual Property Program

UCLA Law provides a preeminent training ground for intellectual property students. Our in-depth curriculum covers key topics in domestic copyright, patent and trademark law as well as specialized courses in international law, art and cultural property, the music industry – and a class called Digital Wars that explores controversies roiling the digital economy.

Through UCLA Law’s acclaimed Ziffren Center for Media, Entertainment, Technology and Sports Law, students may pursue a specialization. Advanced coursework includes a colloquium that offers students the rare opportunity to collaborate with leading scholars and develop their own work. And students contribute to the student-run Journal of Law and Technology, an online publication dedicated to producing the best literature on the web concerning intellectual property topics at the forefront of academia, society and technology.

Whether they are engaging with path-breaking faculty, connecting with members of the Los Angeles Intellectual Property Law Association, pursuing an externship with Sony/ATV Music Publishing or winning the competitive GRAMMY Foundation Writing Competition, students at UCLA Law have access to the essential connections and training to launch their careers in intellectual property law.
